Cardiovascular Imaging: Arterial and Aortic Valve Inflammation and Calcification

Cardiovascular Imaging: Arterial and Aortic Valve Inflammation and Calcification

This book provides comprehensive reviews on our most recent understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying atherosclerosis and calcific aortic valve disease (CAVD) as visualized in animal models and patients using optical molecular imaging, PET-CT, ultrasound and MRI. In addition to presenting up-to-date information on the multimodality imaging of specific pro-inflammatory or pro-calcification pathways in atherosclerosis and CAVD, the book addresses the intriguing issue of whether cardiovascular calcification is an inflammatory disease, as has been recently supported by several preclinical and clinical imaging studies. In order to familiarize researchers and clinicians from other specialties with the basic mechanisms involved, chapters on the fundamental pathobiology of atherosclerosis and CAVD are also included. The imaging chapters, written by some of the foremost investigators in the field, are so organized as to reveal the nature of the involved mechanisms as disease progresses.

Contrast Echocardiography: Compendium for Clinical Practice 1st ed

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the practical aspects of contrast echocardiography. It also covers all the material in the guidelines published by the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) in 2018 and the recommendations set out by the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) in 2017. Contrast echocardiography at present is only used in 5-10% of cases, but this is expected to grow rapidly following the recommendations of the ASE and EACVI. The chapters cover the approved indications and provide practical advice on how to administer the contrast agents and how to optimize the recordings as well as how to deal with the pitfalls. The reader will find all the information on how to use contrast agents for assessment of shunts, LV volumes and function as well as myocardial diseases and masses.  Detailed protocols are included for stress echocardiography and myocardial perfusion imaging. Other topics covered include the use of contrast agents for coronary sonography and transesophageal echocardiography.

 

Contrast Echocardiography: Compendium for Clinical Practice comprehensively covers all aspects of the clinical use of contrast echocardiography and has been written by two cardiologists who share their experience from their high volume echo laboratories. One of the authors has been a member of both the ASE guidelines and EACVI recommendation writing groups.  It is therefore, a critical text for echocardiographers and sonographers who perform echocardiography.

Cardiac Electrophysiology Without Fluoroscopy 1st ed

This book reflects how the concern regarding the effects of radiation exposure in patients and health personnel involved in cardiac electrophysiology (EP) has inspired new developments in cardiac electrophysiology procedures without the use of fluoroscopy. This innovative method has become a subspecialty within electrophysioloy with several EP laboratories around the world adopting an exclusive non-fluoroscopy approach. It features guidance on how to use three dimensional (3D) navigation systems, ablation energy sources and zero-fluorospic implantation of cardiac electronic devices. The potential complications and associated preventative methods with utilising RFCA are also described.

Cardiac Electrophysiology Without Fluoroscopy offers a thorough description of the technique correlated to the performance of EP procedure without the use of radiation, and provides a valuable resource for those seeking a practically applicable guide on how to perform cardiac EP without fluoroscopy, including practising and trainee electrophysiologists, cardiac imagers, general cardiologists and emergency medicine physicians.

Advanced Biomedical Image Analysis 1st Edition

Advanced Biomedical Image Analysis 1st Edition

A comprehensive reference of cutting-edge advanced techniques for quantitative image processing and analysis

Medical diagnostics and intervention, and biomedical research rely progressively on imaging techniques, namely, the ability to capture, store, analyze, and display images at the organ, tissue, cellular, and molecular level. These tasks are supported by increasingly powerful computer methods to process and analyze images. This text serves as an authoritative resource and self-study guide explaining sophisticated techniques of quantitative image analysis, with a focus on biomedical applications. It offers both theory and practical examples for immediate application of the topics as well as for in-depth study.

Advanced Biomedical Image Analysis presents methods in the four major areas of image processing: image enhancement and restoration, image segmentation, image quantification and classification, and image visualization. In each instance, the theory, mathematical foundation, and basic description of an image processing operator is provided, as well as a discussion of performance features, advantages, and limitations. Key algorithms are provided in pseudo-code to help with implementation, and biomedical examples are included in each chapter.

Image registration, storage, transport, and compression are also covered, and there is a review of image analysis and visualization software. The accompanying live DVD contains a selection of image analysis software, and it provides most of the algorithms from the book so readers can immediately put their new knowledge to use.

Members of the academic community involved in image-related research as well as members of the professional R&D sector will rely on this volume.
It is also well suited as a textbook for graduate-level image processing classes in the computer science and engineering fields.

Manual of Diagnostic Ultrasound 2nd Edition

Manual of Diagnostic Ultrasound 2nd Edition

When the first edition of this manual was published in 1995, it quickly established itself as a reference work. In the intervening period, the rapid developments that have occurred in both ultrasound equipment and investigative techniques, including use of ultrasonography in the therapeutic domain, have necessitated publication of a totally new edition of this manual.

This manual is in two parts. Volume 1, is a basic reference text that covers ultrasound techniques, recognition of normal anatomical features and differential diagnosis. This volume, Volume 2 covers pediatric examinations, gynecology and musculoskeletal examinations, as well as therapy.

These two publications, which extensively cover modern diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasonography, will be of great use to medical professionals in both developed and developing countries.

The authors of the individual chapters are internationally recognized experts in their fields, while the book’s editors are Professor Harald T. Lutz, Professor Elisabetta Buscarini and Professor P. Mirk.
